JOHANNESBURG - Moroka Swallows were crowned MTN8 champions on Saturday night at Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

SuperSport United's Franklin Cale was the first to find the back of the net, but Giorgi Nergadze equalised for the Dube Birds, 18 minutes later.

In the second half, Swallows' Bennett Chenene scored the winning goal on the 86 minute.

It took them 33 years to break the drought, but the Birds are now R8 million richer.
